A 25-year-old woman was charged with making a false report that a man pretending to be a police officer sexually assaulted her during a traffic stop in June, according to the Grand Prairie Police Department.
Meagan Clark was arrested Tuesday and has since been released from jail.
“During the last several weeks, GPPD Detectives have exhausted extensive amounts of time and resources attempting to identify a suspect,” a news release from the police department said. “Ultimately Detectives determined that Clark was untruthful about the offense and had fabricated evidence in attempt to make it appear the offense had been committed.”
Police didn’t say why they think Clark allegedly made up the rape.
